Open Science Centre

@ Jyväskylä University Library, Seminaarinkatu 15

You know the museum. You know the library. But what happens, when these two unique forces unite? We took a chance and tried that. Open Science Centre, the coalition of the JYU Library and Museum, brings science close to you. Come and find out how good you are at information seeking and assessing. Which animal do you resemble as an information seeker? Or become an ecologist, spot and identify mammals caught in our trail camera photographs. We are also on a hunt for wikipedists to collect information about our beautiful Seminaarinmäki. At the Natural History Museum you will learn how to turn your garden or balcony nature-friendly. Our special exhibition tells you the multiphased story of the Finnish flag. In the library basement you will feel not only the presence of our rumored ghost but the gleam caused by the daunting and X-rated material from the past.

Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences

@ Ambiotica

  • Research Highlights 10 am - 12 pm

Staff for the Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences will present the research highlights from the past year.

  • Evolution in action workshops 10 am - 12 pm for school groups, open to all from 8 pm - 8:30 pm

We will offer two workshops focusing on evolution. Both will be bookable by school groups. Each workshop will take 10-20 participants and last approximately 30 minutes. Each workshop will run 4 times during the course of the day, with the final session of each open to the public. Both workshops are suitable for ages 7 and up and can be run in both Finnish or English.

The first workshop will focus on Invasion Biology. This workshop will emphasize the importance of studying invasive species. Participants will investigate the behavior (feeding/food avoiding, reproduction) of an invasive insect on different food plants. During the observations, we will encourage participants to come up with different study questions/ hypotheses and ideas how to test them. This will introduce them to the concept of invasive species, their effects on native species and their importance both ecologically and economically. We will emphasis that certain evolutionary traits make for better invaders, and that understanding the evolution of invasive species is crucial for conservation efforts in a changing world.

The second will focus on the evolution of aposematism and warning signals. Participants will be introduced to the concept of warning signals through an interactive game in which they can “forage” for sweets in a population of both cryptic and conspicuous “prey”. By changing the proportion of “unprofitable prey”, i.e. those containing rocks rather than sweets, as well as the availability of social information from watching other participants, participants can see firsthand how the survival of different prey changes. The workshop will be structured around hypothesis testing and will teach students about experimental design. Under the supervision of instructors older participants will also have the opportunity alter aspects of the game in order to test their own questions.

  • Pokémon evolution 6 pm - 11 pm

We all know pokémon “evolve” but did you know pokémon are based on real species? Using the latest taxonomic methods researchers from the USA and Japan have created a fully phylogeny of pokémon evolution. Come see which came first, ground pokémon or grass pokémon. Children can use their knowledge of pokémon to create their own trees, and learn about how scientists classify and study real species. They can also come face-to-face with some of the living animals that inspired their favorite monsters. If that is not enough we will be attaching lure modules to the pokéstops in the biology department to attract as many wild pokémon as possible for further study.

Nanoscience center

@ Nanotiedekeskus (Nanoscience Center) NSC, Ylistö campus, Survontie 9

Many times Nanoscience is felt as something too small to see and too complicated to understand - or even something a bit scary. To dispel this impression, people can now see and experience the phenomena in nanoscience by they own eyes and even try the methods used in nanoscience via macroscopic models.

In Nanoscience center you can experience the phenomena in nanoscience via demonstrations and explore the equipment used to do the research on tours to the top research facilities of the Nanoscience Center. The demonstrations and tours will be guided by the Researchers of the Center who will also gladly answer to any of your questions - related to nanoscience or research or just the life of a researcher. Specially developed teaching-models of nanoscience, which are simplified and macroscopic versions of the real lab devices to clarify the principles, are used in the demonstrations. Some methods are even possibly to try yourselves.

  • Nanoscience Center is open for school groups 10 am - 3 pm

For school groups only. Preregistration required.

  • Open house 4 pm - 12 am

Memories and Experiences of Psychiatric Hospitals

(Kone Foundation 2017-2020) @ Ruusupuisto, Alvar Aallon katu 9, 2 pm - 5 pm

Psychiatric hospitals and asylums are part of the cultural history of Finland. They have been interwoven with the lives of Finnish people in many ways.  

Our multi-disciplinary research group investigates memories of psychiatric hospitals written by patients, relatives, personnel and their children. The texts cover phases of psychiatric care from the 1930s to the 21st century and contain painful and repressed as well as positive memories.

In the Researchers’ Night we present extracts from these memories and pictures from psychiatric hospitals. We also gather new memories. You are warmly welcome to come and share your own.

The presentations will be in Finnish. Memories can also be shared in English.


@ Agora, 4 pm - 10 pm (10 am - 2 pm for school groups only)

  • Hacking smart home devices -workshop

Internet of Things is the inter-networking of all kinds of devices, e.g. TVs, coffee makers and heart rate monitors.

And even more so, as their security is often neglected. Come hear and see how IoT devices can be hacked, what they can be used for after that, and how this affects users’ privacy and security - even health.

Centre for research on learning and teaching & Multicultural study programme in education

@ Ruusupuisto, Alvar Aallon katu 9

Learning and teaching belongs to the core fields of University of Jyväskylä. Emergent Centre for Research on Learning and Teaching (CLT) gathers scientists from Departments of Education, Teacher Education and Psychology as well as from Jyväskylä Centre for interdisciplinary Brain Research. Focal themes comprise neural processes in learning, interaction, learning, learning difficulties, motivation, and learning technology. By Multidisciplinary collaboration we attempt to formulate more accurate knowledge of the processes of learning and teaching.

Faculty of Education and Psychology offers two international Master’s Degree Programmes in the field of education. The programmes comprise courses from all three departments. The aims of the programmes are to prepare highly competent educators and to enhance the quality of education in the diversifying contexts of a globalized world. The students come from different corners of the world bringing their expertise, (and understanding of learning) to the programmes and to the Faculty.

In Research Night we have versatile programme from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. All events except school visits take place in Ruusupuisto building.
